Default Possible failure when checking "Updates" repository

The tricky part is going to be figuring out some way that repos should
be tied together, but also be generic enough to work outside the
"Fedora" world.

Let me know if this doesn't make any sense.

Well, practically all we would need to do is forcibly enable the "Fedora
10 - x86_64" repo when the "Fedora 10 - Updates" is enabled.

Hi,

Now that in anaconda, during package selection, you can enable the
"Updates" repository for a given release, has anyone thought of the
following scenario?


- You select/enable the "Updates" repository

- Included in your selection of packages is package foo, available in
both the "Fedora/" repository as well as the "Updates" repository


- Package foo (from "Updates") now requires package bar, which is in
"Everything/" (not in "Fedora/"), but hasn't been updated since GA
(e.g, is not available in the "Updates" repository)


This would cause failed dependencies if the "Updates" repository is
enabled during installation, also enable the "Everything" repository.

You mean it is possible for someone to add repos to Anaconda which don't
satisfy all the deps? I think that's been known for a long time.




It's not that, it's the package selection dialog with the "Office and
Productivity" / "Software Development" / "Web-server" screen that allows
enabling the "Fedora 10" repository (also known as "Everything/"), and
the "Fedora 10 - Updates" repository.


So, again, adding your own / third party repositories == go die in a
fire, NOTABUG, WONTFIX, WORKSFORME, insert-your-favorite-here.


Enabling the repositories offered in the GUI *as we offer it* however
could lead to errors it shouldn't -> forcibly enabling the "Everything/"
repository when "Updates" has been enabled is the solution, IMO.


Kind regards,

I think 'forcibly' doing anything is probably a way to make people angry
but that decision is up to the anaconda devs.

Well, "forcibly" in this case would be enabling the one check box they
might omit themselves, possibly showing a message... but not necessarily
anything in the background, nothing hidden from the user.

Again, how do you code that generically? Right now anaconda doesn't
have any real sense as to what these repos are, all it does is find
repos that are enabled in the config and lists them in the UI
